Brunnera Emerald Mist Description

Deer proof Brunnera Emerald Mist adds leaf appeal as a shade loving groundcover providing up to 9+ months of foliage interest.

Apple-green leaves are splashed with silver as if Jack Frost had his paintbrushes out again creating his magical allure.

Bold strokes of silver appear randomly throughout the rough textured leaves that deer stay away from. Even some leaves have a misty quality to them. Foliage emerges in the spring only to grow bigger and rounder as the season goes on.

Silver-splashed leaves are topped with 100's of small blue flowers in early spring!

Combine with Hostas, Hardy Ferns or colorful Heucheras in your shade garden.

Special Features: Cold Hardy, Deer Resistant,Disease Resistant Easy Care, Foliage Interest, Multi-seasonal Interest, Pest Resistant, Rabbit Resistant,  Variegated

Ideas and How-to's



Soil: Evenly moist, humis rich soil
Light:  Tolerates more direct sun that most other variegated types of Brunnera, though in hot-summer regions some afternoon shade is recommended to prevent leaf scorch.
Water: Moderate, prefers even moisture
Spacing: 24" apart
Fertilizing: Grow in well-drained soil that is moderately fertile and humus-rich. We do not recommend fertilizing at planting time, or during the first growing season. In successive years, if soil is poorer in quality, and light scattering of slow release fertilizer in spring should be sufficient.
Winterizing: Keep old foliage over winter to protect crowns. After the ground freezes, apply a loose layer of oak leaves, pine boughs, or straw. You can gradually remove mulch, and cut back old foliage in early spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: When the clump starts to deteriorate in the center, it is time to divide it. Plants may be divided easily in early autumn. Plant crowns at soil level. Sometimes self seeds generously, but usually the seedlings have plain green leaves. Remove any green foliage that appears on variegated forms.
